Well I have just tried the new no 7 one-lash adapt- on the recommendation of someone on here...and it's fine. I have used Lancome, Chanel, Clinique...and quite frankly, at £7 with the boots voucher, it's just as good.
Max Factor 2000 Calorie is a classic for thick black lashes. I've also just used a sample of Clinique's High Impact Curling Mascara which looks flipping amazing on, very dramatic. Can't get the bloody stuff off at night though! I've heard good things about the Lancome one before but never really wanted to get addicted a to an expensive one so I put off trying it.
I love Clinique High Impact, or Lancome Definicils. Hypnose is good if you want bulk... BUT!! I swear by the white base mascara first... either Clinique lash building primer or Lancome Cils Booster... Makes a huge difference. Both Lancome and Clinique have got gifts on at Boots too....
I love dramatic mascara too, I think I've tried all on here except blinc and the new No 7 which I understand you can return at the moment if you don't like it and my store has had no returns as yet - I hear you can layer as much as you like with no clumping. I have re purchased all the following and think they are all as good as each other to be honest: L'oreal Voluminous Max Factor False Lash effect Lancome Hypnose (I've tried two versions doll eyes and another, both good) For me they have to be build able and not transfer under the eye. I hated the dior show blackout one
coffee, if I added more than one coat my lashes stuck together so I had fewer thick ones! Like posh spice used to do hers if you recall (this look is not to my liking) the brush is quite thick bushy and 'gappy' once it dried out I found it nice for eyebrows so kept it for that! It might also have transferred under my eye, can't remember for sure but I think so.
I find with the Max factor one once lashes are dry, put an other full coat e.g. touching up make up for an evening and they look really luscious with no clumping . I've had comments; been asked what mascara I use/if I have false lashes with the l'oreal and max factor ones.
The By Terry mascara is brilliant - it's made my natural lashes far thicker after a few months use, it stays on all day, builds up well while staying soft on the lashes and comes off easily. I'd never use another now.
